Help us be good stewards of the arts

We rely on the generosity of our alumni, individual friends of our departments and programs, foundations and corporations to maintain our high standard of scholastic achievement.

The College of Arts and Letters has a number of funds representing all eight departments. To view a list of these Foundation accounts, please visit

CAL also encourages donors and friends to contribute to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence. This fund provides discretionary support through unrestricted gifts.

The Dean’s Fund for Excellence allows the Dean of CAL, Dr. Valerio Ferme, to designate financial support, as needed, college-wide.

To learn more about CAL development priorities or to make a donation, please contact the Director of Development for the College of Arts and Letters, Elizabeth Rock at, or 929-523-8877.  Thank you for your support.
